The error said, could not install SP1, removing all changes

Exactly what error are you receiving?

You may have to disable all anti-virus and anti-malware software before trying to install SP1. If you do disable them you should disconnect from the Internet until the install has finished.

It is also a good idea to delete all unneeded files from you PC with a program like CCleaner click here defrag the hard drive and run checkdisk on the drive before installing any service pack. It may seem a lot of work and bother but it is well worth it.

The problem is that your advice doesn't work

I'm using 32-bit Vista

Rather ungrateful - phono offers very good advice to many people on this forum.

Sorry, phono. Good advice but my PC has probably a more difficult problem

Were you able to download the Microsoft fix point 5 in phono's advice?

"5. If the installation still fails, download and extract the KB947821 update from the Microsoft Download Center. The Windows6.0-KB947821-XXX.msu file will ensure that the computer is ready to be updated. Then try to install SP1 again."

And if so did you get an error message with that as well?

Sorry, I forgot to read Question 5 and I'm going to try neither today or torrow
